SDG&E Call For Energy Conservation Lifted
Dec 11, 2013
SAN DIEGO, Dec. 11, 2013 – A combination of factors eased the strain on Southern California’s natural gas supplies, prompting San Diego Gas & Electric (SDG&E) to lift the strong request for customers to conserve energy.
“We would like to thank our customers for taking steps to conserve energy, especially natural gas, to help ensure we had adequate natural gas supplies to get us through this extremely cold weather pattern without any disruption to natural gas or electricity services,” said Caroline Winn, vice president of customer services and chief customer privacy officer for SDG&E.
While the immediate need for conservation has been alleviated, SDG&E customers can continue to take simple measures to save on their winter heating costs while staying warm this winter:
Additionally, residential customers can sign up for a weekly energy-use summary email to see how much energy they used each day during the previous week —log into My Account, click on My Energy, and click on “Sign Up for Energy Use Alerts” under “Related Links.” Customers can also view gas usage and monthly comparisons on My Account.
